Drug violations dominated the February grand jury term indictments in Wyoming County.

Additional indictments include those for sexual assault, failure to provide change of information as a registered sexual offender, breaking and entering, among other violations.

Twenty people were indicted for drug violations, according to county Prosecuting Attorney Rick Staton.

“Drugs are a factor in many of the other indictments as well,” Staton explained.

“Many of the other indictments have their root in drugs. People steal to get money for drugs, commit violent acts while high, or operate motor vehicles while drug-impaired.

“In fact, driving while drug-impaired has now surpassed alcohol-related DUI in our county.

“Drugs infect almost every case we handle,” Staton emphasized. “From truancy to child abuse and neglect, to violent crimes we are seeing drug abuse — particularly prescription drugs — involved in many of these cases.”

Among the indictments were:

Christina M. Toler, of Lynco, two counts of obtaining goods by false pretense.

Robert A. Deboard, Nettie, grand larceny.

According to state law, the fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, Staton said.
